Don't slander me and bermuda are on his greatest hits comp - pretty available everywhere. crazy crazy mama is on some bootleg or another - don't know which but it's one I don't have.
Far as the acoustic stuff goes - get Gremlins have Pictures which shows up on Ebay a lot and the never say goodbye CD that is all recordings his mom made while he was at the Rusk Mental Institute in the early 70s. If you need more at that point find the acoustic EP whose sleeve folds out into a creepy poster of Roky as a warlock, grab the australian (?) CD that came out a couple years back of roky at a coffee shop covering dylan and donovan tunes (also on the 3CD boxset of 13th floor elevators outtakes), and the Holiday Inn tapes LP that is on a french label and is roky playing songs to some guy at a holiday inn into a tape recorder. it has the singing grandfather on it: "the singing grandfather will... chop off your head, the singing grandfather will kill you dead."
Roky is the singing grandfather.
